  • Common parts between T-series and Regent?

    I have a T-582 tonewheel spinet organ that I want to restore and maintain. I also have an M4072 Regent that is not quite playable, perhaps due to the usual board connector issues. I only have space for one organ. If I can't find anyone who wants the Regent, does anyone here know, are there any parts in the Regent that can be used as spares for the T-582?

    Probably not as the technologies are so different, but there's a small possibility the keys might be the same. I'll leave that to one of our resident technicians.
    It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

      Just remembered. As it's the original 4072 Regent, the Rhythm III unit will be the same basic unit. And the OEM Leslie, perhaps.

        Thanks for your thoughtful replies, andyg. Would you know if there is a chance the key switches are the same, or are they definitely different? How about the tab switches?

        (The two organs obviously have different numbers of keys, but I don’t know whether the key switches are monolithic assemblies or can be broken down into modules; also I wonder if the different technologies require different numbers of contacts for each key.)

        The two organs also seem to both have the same cassette deck, although maintaining the cassette function will not be a high priority for me.

        Lamps for the music stands look similar but I have not confirmed yet they are identical.

          Tabs will be totally different. The actual plastic keys may possibly be the same, as I said, but there won't be 9 contacts per key. It may well be only one.

          The cassette decks will be the same, and won't be worth fixing anyway. They were low quality and unreliable - some dealers took them off the T500 models and put in a blanking plate, to avoid possible warranty claims. And IIRC, Hammond - or their overseas distributors - didn't fit them to the last T500s.
